sorry if my problem may seem trivial to most of you. I'm doing my first few steps on Linux again, after trying it out and dropping it again in my early adolescence.
I am trying to install Ubuntu on my private/non-critial-usage PC and am stuck. Here's what I did and as many data as I suppose to be relevant:
- I copied Ubuntu 17.10 x64 on an USB Stick using LiliUSB
- UEFI-booting the stick gave me a warning, stating that BIOS operating systems may be present and will not be able to boot afterwards. I cancelled the Installation, no data was written.
- I booted the stick as UFD and didn't get the error. I was now at "Installationsart" (Should be "installation method").
- The installation software recommenced to install Ubuntu next to Windows. That's what I wanted, click next.
- On the next chapter, the installation software only offered my second drive (hdd) to install ubuntu to. That's not what I wanted, so "back"
- Choosing "something other" to see what devices and partition tables are present for the software. There is my ssd and my hdd. The ssd has my Windows 10 and two other small, shady Partitions that should be related to Windows 10 recovery at least. sda is Windows 10 and has >100GB free.
I don't feel like manually partitioning for my installation. I'm afraid for SSDs to need some different tool for this, to have some extra loops for EFI and LEGACY+EFI, and to have trouble uninstalling it if the user experience will be unexpectedly bad.
I pretty much picked Ubuntu for my trial because I remembered it to be very focused on casual desktop users. While I, being in that peergroup am now stuck, I guess it's still a valid attribution because I have this place to ask for help :-)
I'll add some additional data, just in case:
